Sharp LZ0P3758 CCD camera module

Jasper Huitink : 2005-09-10 12:25:00
Sharp Corporation introduces : Two new 3 megapixel CCD camera modules intended for use in camera-equipped mobile phones. The two camera modules feature a built-in autofocus function and the new LZ0P3758 features, in addition, an all-internal optical zoom lens that is switchable between normal and 2X zoom, an industry first. Both models will be available in quantity beginning in September 2005. Cameras designed to be embedded in mobile phones are experiencing rapidly growing user demands for compact size, as well as greater functionality and higher image quality on a par with ordinary digital cameras. To round out the line-up, the LZ0P3751 CCD camera module with autofocus will be released at the same time.


OmniVision OV7670 CMOS image sensor

Dennis Hissink : 2005-08-15 14:50:39
OmniVision OV7670 CMOS image sensor : OmniVision Technologies launched the OV7670 CameraChip, a 1/6-inch VGA CMOS. With a pixel size reduced from 4.2 microns to 3.6 microns, the OV7670 uses a smaller optical format than its predecessor, the OV7660, which allows for a significant reduction in module height. "OmniVision's ability to keep driving down pixel size and improving image quality allows module makers to continue shrinking camera module sizes and helps handset makers develop smaller and more sophisticated devices," said Jess Lee, OmniVision's Director of Product Marketing. "With the OV7670 sensor's small footprint, high image quality and new LCD scaler feature, we believe OmniVision is well positioned to meet these needs."


Micron MT9M112 CMOS image sensor for mobile phone

Ilse Jurriën : 2005-08-10 03:00:00
Micron MT9M112 CMOS image sensor for mobile phone : Micron Technology, a worldwide provider of advanced memory and image sensor solutions, today announced sample availability of a one-quarter inch optical format, 1.3 megapixel complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensor, known as MT9M112. Most one-quarter inch based camera-phone handsets on the market today are used with VGA resolution. The new MT9M112 enables 1.3 megapixel SXGA cameras in the same optical format and module form factor, maintaining superior image quality at a much higher resolution. As with all Micron CMOS image sensors, the MT9M112 is equipped with Micron's proprietary low-noise, high-sensitivity DigitalClarity technology.


IBM CMOS image sensor technology availability

Dennis Hissink : 2005-07-18 17:30:00
IBM CMOS image sensor technology availability : IBM announced the availability of technology and manufacturing services for complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors for use in camera-phones, digital still cameras and other consumer products. The offering combines IBM's copper process technology with image sensor intellectual property licensed from Eastman Kodak Company to produce CMOS image sensors that can offer industry-leading image quality for high-volume consumer applications. IBM announced a CMOS image sensor development and manufacturing collaboration with Kodak in September, 2004, which included the license of Kodak CMOS image sensor fabrication intellectual property to IBM.


OmniVision OV9655 CMOS image sensor

Ilse Jurriën : 2005-07-13 15:15:00
OmniVision OV9655 CMOS image sensor : OmniVision Technologies, Inc, the world's leading supplier of CMOS image sensors, today launched its OV9655, a newly improved 1.3 megapixel CMOS image sensor (CIS) for mobile applications. With significant improvements in its pixel performance, the new sensor offers added features and higher image quality. One key feature of the OV9655 is an LCD scaler, which allows handset makers to scale images to the exact size of the phone and eliminates any horizontal or vertical scaling bars on the LCD screen without the need for a more expensive backend DSP. In addition, the OV9655's improved DSP process improves the sensor's image processing capabilities, resulting in greatly enhanced image quality.


Kodak new image sensors for digital cameras

Mark Peters : 2005-07-11 18:10:00
Kodak new image sensors for digital cameras : Eastman Kodak Company reached another milestone in its digital growth strategy with the announcement of innovative new image sensors for mass-market products such as camera phones and digital still cameras. The company also announced important new alliances that will extend its reach in the market for image sensors. The company announced availability of the first CMOS image sensor (CIS) devices to arise from its manufacturing alliance with IBM, as well as development of a reference design that incorporates these new image sensors with multimedia processors from Texas Instruments Incorporated. Kodak also announced an agreement to license key CIS manufacturing technologies to TSMC.


TSMC and Kodak agreement for CMOS image sensors

Ilse Jurriën : 2005-07-08 13:30:00
TSMC and Kodak agreement for CMOS image sensors : Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC) and Eastman Kodak Company have signed a technology licensing agreement that enables the manufacture of a new generation of high-quality CMOS image sensor (CIS) devices. The agreement is part of Kodak's strategy to leverage its core intellectual property into mass-market consumer imaging applications, and enhances TSMC's position as the largest CIS manufacturing foundry by providing support for new technologies to meet the growing demands for the fast-growing consumer markets such as digital still cameras and mobile phones.


Cypress 3 Megapixel CMOS image sensor introduction

Dennis Hissink : 2005-07-06 00:15:00
Cypress 3 Megapixel CMOS image sensor introduction : Cypress entered the camera phone market with a high-quality, low-cost 3.0 Megapixel CMOS image sensor designed to bring digital still camera quality to camera-enabled mobile devices. The Cypress image sensor delivers high-resolution images using the 1/3-inch optical format popular for lower resolution devices, allowing manufacturers to upgrade their offerings without the cost of incorporating new optical lenses. The new device takes advantage of Cypress's three-transistor pixel technology to dramatically improve low light sensitivity without increasing pixel transistor count or sacrificing image quality. In addition, it incorporates patented Autobrite technology.
